Don't be upset by this first cut-up set that Chenard and his crew created in one shot on 17 march 2002. They reworked the whole thing 4 years later : cut all the fat, deplaced some passages, etc. Those funky tunes last a bit more than 2 minutes for once, and were only intended for use with headphones and a phat blunt.

Transient possesses a very rhythmic sound, yet is propelled only by the pulses of bass throughout.
